I wear them with sportcoats, not suits (although I used to do that). I have Aldens in walnut calf and brown suede. Have had them in black, brown and tan calf and burgundy shell cordovan over the years. Great shoes. While I am in the (just) over 50 group, I've been wearing them since I was in my 20's. And yes, they are a part of the "attorney's uniform."
